Men and women are different in many ways; however the biggest difference simply lies between our legs. There is just no denying it, no matter how much you may want to. Weren’t we always taught that women are “melting pots of feelings” while men are explosive rock hard manly man? Does that make any sense? I can see how in many instances that can be very true but I can’t say I agree to this generalization one bit. I’ve seen the movies, I’ve heard the stories, but I have to say they are way out of date. I look at my generation of men and women and I know things are not how they once were. I can’t imagine pretending to be a helpless woman who needs a man in her life just so I can do ANYTHING.
News flash world, we are ALL emotional. We all get angry, we all feel sad, and we all get anxious, men and women. For some odd reason this fact is commonly overlooked. My generation of men and women has changed a lot compared to previous. I’m talking about you men.
Men these days are just as attached and emotional as women. But don’t feel as if I’m attacking you… It’s just the truth. You may just be a lot better at holding your emotions in, or you may not. It isn’t bad to be emotional, to an extent. But to sit there and pretend like women are the ones who blow everything out of proportion and analyze things too critically, you are sadly mistaken. WE ALL DO IT! This whole “manly man” persona you got going on there, good for you. But, where’s that going to take you in life? So what if you’re stronger, taller, or more out-doorsy? I bet there is a woman somewhere out there who is even taller, stronger, and a serious Girl Scout who knows her stuff and can out smart you with her wits.
However; not to purely direct this at men, women if you want to get serious about stepping up in the world take the reins and go for it. What is stopping you? Blame cannot be placed on men for your inability to take charge. You either want to or you don’t, there is no can’t. As a woman I simply cannot understand how other women think it’s cool or attractive to pretend like they are stupid or helpless to get a man’s attention. To submit yourself, you are limiting yourself and making it easy for men to think they have something over you.
If people could simply take a step back, take a deep breath and realize life goes on. What is the point of distinguishing these borders between men and women through simple-minded stereotypes? The gap is thinning between this border. It’s about time to admit men and women can be equal. We are all striving to be someone, to make a difference in the world, or just not to be forgotten when we are finally gone. Men and women alike can easily work side by side and take advantage of each other’s knowledge if we let it happen and not try to dominate one another.
